I have noticed the parking brake engaging automatically at times when I shift to park. The odd thing is that this does not happen consistently, sometimes it happens on an incline and sometimes it does not and vice versa. I know the manual states that the parking brake may be auto engaged at times, but I have just not found a common denominator that would explain why it has engaged automatically under different circumstances, but more often than not it does not do so.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Mine has engaged when it senses a decline or incline and does not engage when the area is level. So far it has done this consistently.

Mine is not consistent at all. Sometimes I'm on an incline and it don't engage. It's cool though because I love the fact that it auto disengage when I touch the gas. Helps prevent you from riding on the parking brake. I use to accidentally do it on my explorer. Funny though it won't disengage if you're not in a seat belt lol. Speaking of which I love the fact the seat belt bell shuts up after 1 min.

I just went and tried it in my driveway and it worked exactly how Dajuice05 described, including not disengaging with my seatbelt off. Thanks!

Yep, testing as proved to me that the parking brake will not disengage without the seat belt being put on and you will get a display informing you of this.

Secondly you can engage either the drive or reverse and the parking brake will disengage to allow you to move the car.

I also discovered that once the engine is running, placed in park without the parking brake engaged you can drive the vehicle for a short distance without the seat belt connected and hear no warning.

Going to bump this old thread, sorry 🙂
I just had the parking brake engage automatically in my driveway where there's a small incline. Cool feature but it would be great if there was a mention of that somewhere in Hyundai guide or manual.

The manual only says parking brake can Auto engage if using auto hold (I am not using that) or if requested by other systems. That is kind of vague. What other systems, what are the conditions?

Also before buying the Palisade I looked at all features, review videos, etc., and nothing mentioned this feature

The auto parking brake on the Pali is kinda annoying and only activate if auto-hold was on, it also won't disengage if the driver seat was off. On other cars, the parking brake will engage when shifting to park and disengage when shifting out of park. They should release a software update to let the driver select when the parking brake will engage.

I never use Auto Hold and my parking brake will auto engage if I park on a slight decline or incline. It will disengage automatically if you shift into Reverse or Drive with a tap on the throttle, but only if you have your seatbelt on. If you don't have your seatbelt on then you have to manually disengage it using the switch.

Yeah, I manually disengage that when I don't have my seatbelt on. (Most often that is driving into the garage from the incline of the driveway while washing the car) I saw the message about seatbelt and then noticed I could just manually disengage it for the long 5 second 1 mph drive into the garage.

I second Sterling in that I too will have to try without the seatbelt, but I also don't recall it disengaging when hitting the gas, that would be convenient.

I did not know that the parking brake would disengage whenever you try to accelerate. I just went out in my garage and tried it and it worked just fine. I sure am glad I listened to you guys.

Hmmmm. Well mine engages all the time and I don't want it. It repeatedly gets stuck and will not disengage when I shift into D or R. Had to have it towed to dealer yesterday...not happy right now.

Is it possible to totally disable the parking brake? I don't want it and never use it. I live and breathe on level terrain.

Yeah sorry, sounds like you definitely have issues with it. Mine doesn't act up at all and never engages automatically other than when using Auto Hold or an incline.

If I could, I'd disengage it too. There are times when you just want to move the car to get acccess to something or to bring a long item home from Lowes with the lift gate tied down.

I'm confused, are you saying you can't release the parking brake with the lift gate open? You can release the parking brake anytime manually. The only time it won't auto release is in D, seatbelt OFF, and you step on the accel to move the Pali, then the EPB stays engaged. This is how most people release the EPB is by letting it auto disengage by stepping on the gas however that won't work if seatbelt isn't ON.

Anyways, sorry just confused on what you're trying to do with it.

The whole damn thing is a PIA...most of us are experienced licensed drivers who know when to set and release the parking brake...

Yeah blutob2, me too. I tried to move it the normal way with the gas pedal. I figured it out after reading in the manual to hold the brake pedal then disengaging the parking brake. But, i agree with beepster, we are responsible adults and know how to use a parking brake.

Sure we are responsible adults and know how to use it. But are we also responsible and do we need voice texting, LFA, LKA, BSM, 360 camera, auto lights, auto brights, auto wipers, etc? In today's society, these cars aren't necessarily being built for people with 30+ years of driving experience.
